. [laughter] i didn't ask them to ask this question. >> his name is lee -- >> lee edwards. >> lee edwards. >> that's right. >> who is also a biographer, as you are. >> and he's a historian. he's written several histories of the conservative movement. he himself has been a member of the conservative movement, an important person in that. >> jealousy? >> no, it's not jealousy, i can do that. but one thing about mr. edwards being asked to write that review, is that one of the things he takes issue with is i call him from his ghost writer because -- it was thurmond's staffer, former staffer of thurmond who has characterized his work on the book as being ghost writing. i talked to them and after talking to him, i e-mailed mr. edwards and i asked him if i could interview him about his relationship with traffic and what work he did in that kind of thing. and he said it was 40 years ago, yeah, as any entity would be a waste of your time and mine. so my own thing i can do, he was brave enough to read a criticism after the book when it got right. he got a number of things wrong. he quoted goldwater

. the letter to edward conway started on he wants to bring in german immigrants to be in ventured servants, and incur -- intermingle with the slaves. he said their children will be free. i don't interpret that as him kind of being racist saying slaves can become citizens but in ventured servants can. are you suggesting that he was imagining them to intermingling intermarriage and that he -- >> no. no. go ahead. spent the letter pretty clearly refers to the german children that he's talking about -- >> there's a follow-up -- >> i've read -- i know in 1798 short makes almost the same proposal and short explicitly calls for interracial marriage and interracial children. he embraced it spent totally different circumstances. >> it's the same type of proposal. he was talking about german immigrants. the same type of thing, but i mean in jefferson's letter, i mean, i've written about it. i'd be happy to show you the letters. in this letter, he's talking about the children, the germans. >> no. now, he's talking about the children's be dished i have a letter spent that's what he told thomas paine b
a lot of anti-president obama books like edwards kline "the amateur," "the great destroyer" "i am the change," and "obama's america," critical of president obama. do these books sell well? >> guest: they do sell well because they are rightly or wrongly a counter point. readers wish to buy that that, and as a result, these books have an an active audience. now that he's re-elected, i'm serve publishers who are conservatively inclined will continue to produce books that sell well because they will continue to appeal to an audience that demands these books. >> host: now, bob, have you interviewed any of the critical authors? >> guest: no -- well, let's see, glenn beck, but he's not recently taken on exactly president obama. sort of interesting. i think this is generally true, who whoever -- whoever is in the power in the white house, the opposite political slant on books does better. when a liberal democrat is in the white house, conservatives tend to do belter. when there's a conservative in the white house like bush, books critical of the president tend to do better. in fact, i rem
were taken by the photographer, edward steichen, in 1903. he was just starting out as a photographer and morgan was sitting for a portrait--having his portrait painted. and he hated to sit still for very long, so alfred stieglitz, who was a very famous photographer, decided that morgan should have a photo--the painter should have a photograph to work from, and hired edward steichen, who was just starting out in his career, to do it. steichen came in--he actually posed a janitor in the shot while he set it up to get it ready for morgan. morgan blew in, sat down very quickly, took the pose that he always took for the portrait painter, and steichen made the quick exposure and took that shot. however, he didn't really like the pose. he thought it was too formal, too self-conscious, and he asked morgan to rearrange himself a little bit, to move his head slightly to one side and get in a more comfortable position. morgan was not pleased to be told to rearrange himself a little bit, so he bristled a bit. and steichen immediately saw that this was the morgan--he saw these sort of piercing ey

over again. erin, you were heavily involved in covering the john edwards trial. what did we learn there? >> well, i think we learned, number one i mean the justice department has had a real mixed record this year and actually the last four years. in john edwards' case he won the battle. he was acquitted on one charge and there was a mistrial on the other, so he walked away but i think he lost the war. so i think we learned more unfortunately, about this particular individual than most of us really wanted to know. and the whole idea of him trying to come back right now, you know, he spent a fortune, maybe his fortune, on this case. he hasn't worked for four years. he's trying to get his law license back to active status. it will be interesting to see what he does next. >> moving forward. >> changed a lot of people's views about politicians, too, and their personal lives. >> it was an astonishing fall from grace. i think when all of a sudden people start peeling back the layers of your life inside a courtroom, it's not the place where you ever want to have that

and john edwards when they were running against george w. bush, and one of the things the opponents were able to do effectively was to put a caricature to him, if you will, with the swift boat ads and the flip-flopping here. give us a sense of his reputation overseas. >> very good. very strong reputation overseas and during these first four years, the first term of the obama administration. the president has used him pretty much as a special envoy, if you will, as an unofficial m emmisary to various hot spots. even early when there was some hope that the u.s. could deal with bashar al assad, the syrian president and john kerry asked senator as chairman of the foreign relations committee was dispatched to damascus and met with the syrian president and we now know that came to nothing, that entire initiative to reach out. any of the initiatives that may have been going on elsewhere with iran, for example, and john kerry was not directly involved in reaching out to the regime in tehran, but he was used on some sensitive, back channel, diplomatic initiatives during the first four years of t

with edward reilly and joan walker of allstate, and post the economic crisis, we decided to see what the american public's perceptions are as to what was happening in their lives and the economy. part of the notion over the years, it is to give voice to middle class and american public opinion as to what is happening with our economy and their lives. we have conducted literally over 25,000 interviews, the last four years, so there is a repository year of data which is extraordinary, which is available, and i really recommend it to all of you at as a database that gives a pretty good sense of what the public has been thinking and gives a voice to the middle class. the survey we're talking about the day that ed reilly is going to present has a different orientation, more toward what does the public want to see done as opposed to what do they think and how did a few things straight it is their to-do list, not limited to just worrying about the debt and the fiscal cliff and such. our program today, i am welcoming you. joan walker will welcome you as well. ed reilly will give the polling

. there is some concern, though, about her condition, because she's been hospitalized at the king edward vii hospital in central london with what has been described as acute morning sickness. people i have spoken to who know about this say it's much worse than that. >> well, it is serious and the word you use, it's very debilitating. she's going to be confined to her hospital bed possibly for several days. prince william was there this afternoon. he left early this evening and i suspect he will be back there first thing tomorrow morning. he's obviously very concerned, as are both the royal family and of course, the middleton family as well. this is going to be a first grandchild for them. so yes, there is concern. of course this is very, very happy momentous news but what they are saying is she is going to need plenty of rest. we know that all of her public engagements have been suspended until further notice. i suspect we probably won't see the duchess carrying out any official engagements until possibly after christmas. >> right. and the other part of all this is fascinating, is the succes
to misbehavior in high office. there's a long history of it and arnold schwarzenegger and john edwards, david petraeus had nothing on alexander hamilton. if you read for example letters written by martha washington going to the winter camp, she didn't complain about the weather. she didn't complain about the harsh conditions but she did complain about one thing. there was a was a tomcat one winter that was misbehaving and it was noisy and kept her awake at night so she nicknamed the tomcat alexander hamilton. because of all the young girls will come into the camp. i also did a book a few years ago called life in the white house about the presidents and these. what hobbies do they have? what were their fears and hopes and what did they -- or were they like his fathers and husbands as another way of stressing presidential characters providing us with another lens. we are all still trying to figure out -- and for example nixon in his free time like to bowl alone and sometimes wore a black suit to do it. that begins to explain things, right everyone? who does this? so i guess all books and up to
